I initially thought this may be a karoro - black backed gull as an adult one was standing by it and flew aways when I stopped to take photos. When I finished the karoro returned. But looking at the photos I think it may be something else. It was still alive when found.

South Georgia Diving-Petrel Pelecanoides georgicus

Description

South Georgia Diving Petrel
Cooper Bay, South Georgia
27 Jan 1996

On trips to the Southern Ocean and Antarctica, birds will regularly land on the the ship overnight. They probably become confused by the navigation lights, etc. In any event, most are not injured, and morning patrols of the ship often revealed several birds on the decks. This South Georgia Diving Petrel was picked up from the deck, examined and photographed, then tossed overboard into the wind. It flew safely away.

Description from Wikipedia

The diving petrels are seabirds in the bird order Procellariiformes. There are four very similar species all in the family Pelecanoididae and genus Pelecanoides (Lacépède, 1799), distinguished only by small differences in the coloration of their plumage and their bill construction.
